Leif & Peter Anthony in 1980
Leif, your brother arrived yesterday, and how we wish you were here to be with us, to have our family complete. Here's another photo of the two of you in 1980 when you were 5 years old and we were living in Germany. You could look so absolutely joyful at times. Where did that joy go? Adulthood seems to have robbed it from you.
You had your pensive and sad, and yes, angry, moments as all children do, but many, many happy ones, too.
I'll be thinking of you every moment during Peter's visit, and seeing how you were with your nieces and nephews on their visits. Remembering your smiles, your laughter with them. I hope you are here in spirit.
